Much like liposuction in other areas of the body, face and neck liposuction works by surgically removing excess fat from the affected area(s). Sometimes referred to as contouring, liposuction can alter your appearance and create a younger look by getting rid of fat and restoring smoothness to the area. Dr. Iero can discuss the details of face and neck liposuction as well as your goals for treatment when you visit our Bellaire, TX, office for your consultation.
Liposuction can treat a variety of conditions and help patients feel younger and more attractive. Some of the most common conditions that liposuction addresses include
- Double chin
- Sagging neck skin (turkey neck)
- Unrefined jawline/neckline
Dr. Iero can use local anesthesia to numb the area needing treatment. Then, he will make a couple of small incisions so he can insert a thin tube, which will suck out the surplus fat from the area. He will then stitch the skin back in place, removing any excess skin if necessary. Once the sutures are in place, he will bandage up the area and fit you with a chin strap, which provides added support during the healing period.
